Wolves loanee given seven games to earn permanent deal

Jérémy Hélan will be given the rest of the season to prove to manager Kenny Jackett that he deserves to be rewarded with a permanent deal in the summer, according to the Shropshire Star.

The winger, who arrived at Molineux on loan from Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday last month, has started every single Championship game for Wolves since moving from the Owls.

Jackett said: “He has helped us in terms of balance. He’s a very athletic player. He gives up options in a wide left position and as an attacking left back, which at the right time we’ll need as well.

“I’ve been pleased with him, he’s been a good addition for us.”

Wolves currently sit in 12th with eight games of the campaign to go. The club’s last game of the season is against Hélan’s parent club Sheffield Wednesday – a game that the Frenchman is therefore ineligible to play in.

The 23-year-old has one year left on his contract at Hillsborough and a permanent transfer away from the Yorkshire club depends on whether the Owls can secure a return to the Premier League for the first time since the Millenium.

No formal discussions have taken place between Wednesday and Wolves over the possibility of a summer transfer deal for Hélan.
